[Solved] First day not going well

Postby cowboy7307 » 12 May 2014 01:10

I have downloaded solydk and have burned it twice to dvd disk
when i try to load disk to computer it starts off ok then it turns my screen off and just sits there doing nothing
i have tried burning iso with zorin and with windows burners
i loaded from your home site via torrent for 32 bit
iam now wondering if its been a bad download i have used Linux based before and never had any trouble
any help please before i waste any more disks
many thanks

In Zorin

Go to where the SolydK iso is and open terminal there and do a md5sum check and post back results so other members can see if you got a good downloaded iso and not a corrupt one instead.

I think rokytnji may have been referring to the MD5 checksum for the ISO itself, not the individual files that make up the ISO. GUI apps for verifying checksums...

Linux - GTK: gtkhash (in the repos)

Windows, OS X: Hashtab, http://www.implbits.com

CrunchBang -- Siduction -- SolydBang (Openbox, Tint2, most of XFCE4 removed, CrunchBang scripts)

Yep, the whole iso.

I think only team members know the md5sums of individual files like you posted. Thanks MoldMe.

SolydK 64-bit: 847108ef7d7eb3a12743264599f1589d
SolydK 32-bit: 2ebb49d514183876db4c908df31e32ab

Don't know for sure as not clear using 32bit SolydK KDE?
And how are you verifying your process of md5 checksum?

You need to supply your machine specs.

I was trying to install most recent SolydK on some old machines recently (& other distros KDE BTW) and it was running out of memory.

I am coming to the view that the newer KDE versions may well run in 1Gb memory once installed but they require 2Gb minimum to run live & install. Likewise to you, SolydX installed without a glitch on same machines.

In any case, I think to help you further we will need some hardware details.

Might be no inxi in Zorin.

Edit: A link to your gear and spec sheet would be helpful also.

Edit: dmicode is also useful to find ram specs. I posted this in another forum.

Linky

Maybe one of the other members know more than me about dealing with Cedar.

In all the excitement you haven't really said how far it gets into the boot process. If it gets at least as far as the grub menu, it MIGHT be a problem with SolydXK default build (the LiveISO) playing nice with your video card.

Please try this: Reboot from your SolydK DVD, but when it gets to the grub menu, follow step 1 from this tutorial --> http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php? ... 08&p=33796.

Do only Step 1 (a - c) and let's see if this doesn't get things at least as far finishing the boot of the LiveDVD.

Once we have this done, and you've installed SolydK and boot up (again with the nomodeset option), the next steps will be to install the PAE kernel (for the second processor core) and then someone else can help you with the graphics card. I would, but I know NOTHING about AMD cards.

I am running solysx just now
but when i tryed to load solydk i get just past where it tells me the installer it uses then there is a flash screen with solydk on it
then it goes dark then turns screen on then does nothing
looks like its loading something off the net because my modem is working, but i have left it for an hour but nothing happens
i think its KDE wanting to much ram as some one else said, i have never had this trouble with any other linux before and solydx is fine zorin ,and ubuntu ,mint mate all have run i just wanted to try out solydxk maybe its not tobe

If i cant get solydk to load can i download KDE from the download manager and if so what one lite or full and see if that works

There should be litte if any modem activity while booting. So, I don't know what's going on there.

RAM is not an issue - you have 2G, more than 3 times what you would need for the Live version to boot.

As for Downloading and installing KDE from the repos .... while it's possible, I would hold off on that until you take a shot at what I posted above about booting with the nomodeset option.

I do not understand what you are trying to communicate.

Please, to the best of your ability, can you re-phrase using complete sentences?

@OP...If you have your heart set on using KDE, then maybe you can convert SolydX to KDE since you're having so much trouble trying to install SolydK.
